Episode 38 - The Heat of Battle!

Greetings, Citizens!

Question: What happens when your favorite Deadboys don't manage to post an update to their blog for a freaking WEEK AND A HALF?
Answer: Two updates in a day! Woo hoo!

This topic is one we've been asked several times to address. What do you do to speed up combat?

Let's be honest, we all want the hot intensity of a Gorge R.R. Martin battle scene or some climactic battle from Brandon Sanderson, but sometimes the excitement of the scene falls apart because of a really slow pace. But that's not actually your fault, nor is it that of your players! Even the system isn't completely to blame. The real issue here is how you can work within the existing framework of the game to allow for the fast-paced, exciting battle you want.

Granted, we're not experts in … well, pretty much anything, but we've got some experience. We this episode will hopefully give you a few tips and tricks to speed up combat and make it more exciting while still maintaining the epic, heroic feel you're (probably) aiming for.

Carry on, citizens!
